BUILDING DIGNITY is an architectural campaign that delivers the opportunity to recognize the beauty and significance of historic buildings in the local community. In spite of the fact that historic buildings are essential part of the local community and culture, the general public is usually unconcerned about the historic buildings; therefore they can be easily abandoned and demolished. As a major part of the campaign to raise the public concern for such historic buildings, the BUILDING DIGNITY Exhibition was initiated utilizing an abandoned building of former Tokyo Rope Mfg. Kokura Plant, a 100-year-old brick masonry structure remaining in Kitakyushu City, and the Moji Okan Way, a part of the old highway network of Edo era.
